Creating new characters

While we’ve been on early access for a few weeks I’ve been noticing how people play through youtube videos of the game. The game feels like it needs some tweaks to get the gameplay right but also it seemed a bit easy for some.

We’ve done testing at events and getting lots of people to play and it always seemed about right with the difficulty. But I think the steam audience want more challenges in the gameplay.

So while Rob (programmer) was away I’ve decided to add some content and create a new boss the epic zombie Queeny. queen

She is going to be one powerful boss with more special moves. We want people to go ahhhhh here comes the queen!

I was thinking what moves would she actually have that were running after someone and whacking them with a weapon. So after a small time of thought I came up what the queen would do… summon her royal guards. We want special harder zombie that she generates while she’s alive to protect her. I then started modelling the zombie royal guards

These guys are one of the first zombies I’ve made with a weapon. An riffle to. Think we are going to make them come out f the ground and start shooting. If they get shot to rag doll then they drop there gun and run after you like a mad manic crazy dude on crack.

Back to queen what else shall we make here do. Well she can’t just walk around. So i think lets give her a Spetre that shoots a massive Lazer beam ….. WHY not? So I created an animation for it.

Think this boss will be awesome when we program it into the game. And will do an update on the progress of it soon.

  1. I really love the game and so does my daughter. We played it at Egx 2015. She strongly wants to recommend that you add a fox as a new animal character. I concur.
